Humans have always struggled with stress, from prehistoric days spent stuck in traffic behind a glacier to medieval-era headaches over finding leeches who accept one’s insurance. Do battle with an ancient enemy with today's Groupon to Amber Spa. Choose between the following options:
- For $75, you get a spa package for one (a $155 value).

Each package includes the following per peson:

Amber Spa’s licensed spa technicians unearth fresh complexions and banish tension by performing skincare and bodywork treatments in a tranquil haven enhanced with décor by local artists. The one-hour European facial can treat normal, dry, or oily skin, as it expels both superficial and underlying grime with a deep cleanse that leaves pores emptier than a black hole's social calendar. One-hour herbal body wraps begin with a warm hazelnut-oil massage before a body polish with detoxifying Chinese herbs shines up epidermal appearance as it sloughs away dead skin cells.
Ideal for spa-day escapes alone or with a frazzled friend, Amber Spa is ablaze with shades from the top half of the rainbow. Its vermilion-hued waiting room is furnished with a tree-trunk table complete with squirrel concierge and a chocolate-leather couch. Small stained-glass windows complement the spa's sanguine ambiance, and lamps with beaded embellishments drizzle warm light upon butterscotch-colored walls.
Amber Spa's owner Ewa Tomic helms a staff of certified and licensed skin- and bodycare specialists, who beautify clients with a range of facials, waxing services, and body treatments. Sleek leather furniture fills the tranquil Bucktown spa, which is warmly lit by fabric-covered lamps, a vintage chandelier, and sunlight pouring in through stained glass created by local artist Marianna Grzegorczyk. The walls are set ablaze with red paint, bedecked in paintings by local artist Rich Greene and lined with a complete selection of G.M. Collin skincare products, which can treat acne, reverse the effects of aging, and remove stubborn milk mustaches.
